2019 Mercedes C300 Cabriolet – The Definition of Modern Luxury. 2019 Mercedes C300 Cabriolet – Drive, Interior and Exterior. Color: Designo Diamond White Bright, Designo Nappa Leather Bengal Red/Black. Subscribe.
The four-seater with a classic fabric soft top is the embodiment of the Mercedes-Benz design philosophy: sensual purity as the definition of modern luxury – hot & cool. At the same time the Cabriolet shows independence of character with a visibly sporty expression and youthfully fresh appeal.
The tightly stretched Cabriolet soft top with a glass window transitions harmoniously into the distinctively styled rear end, which has a highly sporty look with its wide shoulders and flat LED tail lights. Depending on the engine variant, the boot capacity is up to 360 litres. For a convertible, the C-Class Cabriolet accommodates an unusually large amount of luggage and therefore provides excellent conditions for high day-to-day suitability.
The Cabriolet is optionally available with the AIRCAP electric draught stop system and AIRSCARF neck-level heating – for exceptional comfort during open-top driving on 365 days of the year.
As the suspension is 15 millimetres lower than that of the Saloon, the two-door C-Class models already look sporty with the standard 17-inch wheels, emphasising the sporty overall character. The four-link front axle with wheel suspension decoupled from the spring strut plays a major part in the agile handling characteristics. This allows sporty axle kinematics for plenty of grip and high lateral stability. As a result, the suspension responds more sensitively to steering movements and allows a sporty, agile driving style. A multi-link independent rear suspension with five links ensures excellent wheel location qualities and supreme straight-line stability. Options such as 4MATIC all-wheel drive or the new DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL suspension including the Sport Direct-Steer system further enhance the driving experience and allow thrilling dynamism.
The sharper front end design exudes sportiness and lifestyle at first glance. Powerful styling elements such as the new bumper and the standard diamond radiator grille lend the C-Class Cabriolet and Coupé an individual character. The now standard LED High Performance headlamps in a new design have an especially distinctive, avantgarde appearance. For the first time in this model series, MULTIBEAM LED headlamps with ULTRA RANGE high beam are additionally available (see separate chapter for details).
Thanks to the autonomous design with the dynamic details and standard-fit two-pipe exhaust system (petrol engines), the rear view appears broad and agile. A particular highlight both day and night are the revised, more accentuated all-LED rear lamps.
The sporty design features are heightened with the AMG Line. For example, the AMG Line Exterior includes the diamond radiator grille with pins in chrome plus an AMG-specific front apron with new geometry, sporty air intakes and a chromed trim element. The exterior with the Night package, available for the cabriolet for the first time, sports an even more athletic look with its black design features. These include the black trim elements in the AMG front apron and the AMG rear apron plus exterior mirror housings painted in high-gloss black. A particular highlight both day and night are the redesigned, more accentuated all-LED rear lamps.
The colour spectrum has been broadened with the AMG Line. New colours are mojave silver metallic and – exclusively for the Coupé and Cabriolet – graphite grey metallic.
The sporty interior with its autonomous integral-look seats is characterised by further-enhanced perceived quality and flowing shapes and the facelift takes it into the digital era.
The centre console is characterised by an elegant flowing trim element – optionally with new materials: open-pore brown walnut or open-pore anthracite oak. The two-tone colour combination magma grey/black is newly available for the interior.
The KEYLESS-GO starting function is standard. The start/stop button comes in a new turbine-look design. The vehicle key also features a new design. Customers have a choice between three variants: black with high-gloss chrome surround, white with high-gloss chrome surround or white with matt chrome surround.
The soft top of the Cabriolet can be operated from the outside with the vehicle key and the “Open/Close” buttons.
